This made my day!

So, last fall I signed up with Compassion International to sponsor a little boy in Honduras, it was one of the best decisions I ever made. When I looked in the mailbox this evening, I was excited to there was a letter from him waiting for me. It was actually written by his older brother, on his behalf. It was great to learn a little more about him and judging by some of the questions he asked, my letter to him hasn’t arrived yet. The ending made me cry, “He sends you many kisses and a big hug and may God bless you.” Precious!

Lucy Pevensie from “The Chronicles of Narnia” is one of my personal heroes, I relate to her character the most and she is the one I wish to be most like. She is open-hearted, the first to go to Narnia, usually the first to see, believe or trust Aslan. After Edmund is horrid to her, she forgives him and puts it behind her. Her loyalty is unswerving, she was given the gift of healing by Aslan. The name Lucy means “Light.”

I am not very much like Lucy, I have a hard time forgiving and I don’t naturally let people in very easily or quickly. However, these are qualities that I admire and strive for in my life and thinking of little Lucy helps me visualize what those qualities might look like.
